Honduras Gets A New President

After recently reading about Manuel Zelaya's presidential victory in Honduras in 2005, I found an article about the new president's being sworn in. Zelaya was ousted by the military in June of '09. Aparently people thought he was trying to extend his presidency (among many other issues.) On the 27th, new president Porfirio Lobo was sworn in. Zelaya flew to the Dominican Republic, although he said he would return. President Lobo signed amnesty for Zelaya and the orchestraters of the coup. Hopefully President Lobo can lift the nation from political turmoil.
